The Chronicles of Namibia

The Chronicles of Namibia … Coming May 2006.  USA Today has a preview of Angelina Jolie‘s interview with Ann Curry: Those celebrity magazine reports that actress Angelina Jolie is due as early as next week differ from her announcement that she’s not quite eight months pregnant. Jolie, 30, sat down this week for an interview with NBC’s Ann Curry in Namibia, Africa, where the actress and her family — Brad Pitt, 42, and their two children — are living at a resort while they await the arrival of their newest member. The interview airs on Today Thursday (7 a.m. ET/PT) and Dateline Sunday (7 p.m. ET/PT). In her first comments about her relationship with her Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star, who divorced Friends actress Jennifer Aniston last year, Jolie tells Curry, "I don’t talk about our — my relationship in public. But we also don’t talk about it at home. It’s one of those funny things that just happens, and you live your life, and you’re a family. But you never actually discuss (it)."The whole relationship question, Jolie says, makes her "giggle." It’s "just kind of funny. If (Brad) saw this, he would probably understand why I was laughing. Because I just don’t know how to address that kind of thing." (continued after the jump)

(continued before the jump) Jolie says she broke her silence with the media to further her latest cause: educational opportunities for children worldwide.

When she looks at her son Maddox, 4, from Cambodia, and daughter Zahara, 1, from Ethiopia, she says, "I just think, especially my daughter, there’s no possible way she would have gone to school. She is so smart and so strong. And her potential as a woman one day is great.

"Hopefully, she will be active in her country and in her continent when she’s older. And because she’ll have a good education, she’ll be able to do that much more."

The actress elaborates on the changes in her life in recent years: "My life is very full. I’m very proud when I see my children — already Mad, just how he adjusts to different places in the world and different people and his views and the kind of man he’s going to be. I’m very lucky."

Jolie says she knows the gender of the child she and Pitt are expecting, but she doesn’t reveal whether Zahara and Maddox can expect a brother or a sister.

    Thanks JJ, remind of the time my brother went to Disneyland with my niece and nephew, they did a similar picture, but the back ground was star war. My niece was princess lea, my nephew was Han Solo and my brother was luke Skywalker..Any how, now I know why people are flagging everyone about the Namibia’s pic. The new people magazine 100 most beautiful people is out tomorrow and AJ is on the cover, the most beautiful family also goes to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and of course they features all those photo that JJ had posted on yesterday. I can not wait to get my people magz.

    When Jolie announced her pregnancy, she stated the baby was due "in early summer"…how the tabs moved up the date to May just shows you how information gets distorted to sell magazines.

    All Reuters News ——————————————————————————–Jolie speaks about schools, not babies or BradWed Apr 26,11:22 AM ETHeavily-pregnant Hollywood star Angelina Jolie broke her silence on Wednesday from her African hideaway, but she wasn’t talking babies or Brad Pitt.Jolie, whose trip to Namibia has sparked a blaze of interest in the international media, took time to promote one of her favorite causes: boosting educational opportunities for the world’s poor.Talking to reporters in a teleconference with British finance minister Gordon Brown, Jolie said it was time for the world to get behind the Global Campaign for Education, a new plan aimed at giving 100 million children in poor countries the chance to go to school."I’m just thrilled to have this opportunity to help bring this to the forefront of peoples’ minds this week… It is a rare occasion that I am really thanking the press," said Jolie.She and Pitt have seen their Namibian hotel besieged by paparazzi photographers eager for pictures of the couple’s expected child. ADVERTISEMENTJolie’s call came as U.S. activists increased pressure for support for the education initiative, which got a boost this month when Brown announced the British government would spend $15 billion over 10 years to train teachers and build and equip schools in poor countries.Brown said the onus was now on other developed countries to pitch in, adding that he was sure both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund would both sharpen the world’s focus on the need for education."We have to raise $10 billion per year if we are to ensure that every child has access to education," Brown said.The appeal for help for the world’s underprivileged children marked a return to form for Jolie, who together with Pitt has in recent weeks played a cat-and-mouse game with reporters desperate for news of their first child, expected in mid-May.The celebrity couple issued a plea for privacy at their Namibian hotel on the cold shores of the Atlantic, but since then has allowed selected media, including a U.S. television network, access.Jolie declined to discuss her own baby but said schools for the world’s children remained close to her heart."It has been proven that a basic primary education can completely change the lives of people around the world," said Jolie, who has made numerous visits to refugee camps in her role as a U.N. goodwill ambassador and has adopted a son from Cambodia and a daughter from Ethiopia."It’s not just my voice, it’s everybody’s voice … this is the best investment we can make."

    I am in awe of Angelina’s human essence, the love she has for humanity as a whole and, especially, for her children. She is a remarkable woman.

    "just kind of funny. If (Brad) saw this, he would probably understand why I was laughing. Because I just don’t know how to address that kind of thing." Wow… who is she kidding. All the sudden she is so perplexed. And how is her one year old daughter so "strong." This is an infant. No need to try to turn her into a strong black woman, already. She shouldn’t have to struggle any more. And she shouldn’t have to turn into a diplomat. Talk about pressuring your kids!

    Betsy Says:

    Part of me is so conflicted about this whole thing…I do think they make an adorable family and the kids are cute..hey brad ain’t too bad either but on the other hand I sort of feel they both just toy with the media and run off to Namibia and create this big spectacle only to turn around and then be like "leave us alone". I can appreciate Angelina’s work with the third world but then again they are staying at a posh resort in Namibia that is costing them something like $35,000 a week or month I heard. It’s not exactly like they are "roughin" it in the bush. Granted I do think she and Brad spend valuable time and money on situations like children’s education which is more than most celebrities do, but there is just something ironic about the whole thing at the same time.
